Miller honored for volunteer service by RSVP

Tom Miller, who helped found the Loveland Fishing Club a decade ago and served as its first president, was honored Tuesday, March 12, with the RSVP Senior Corps’ “Lead with Experience” Service Award.

RSVP noted Tom “continues to redefine the way seniors contribute to the quality of outdoor recreation in northern Colorado. “  As noted in his nomination by Club Vice President Bill Prater, Tom’s “in-depth knowledge of public policy and fishing and hunting continue to pay remarkable benefits for seniors, youngsters and other residents of Larimer County. “

Joining in support of Tom’s award were staff of Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Larimer Parks and Open Lands and Chilson Senior Center, along with club members.  LFC’s Walt Graul and Jim Roode both praised Tom’s leadership in pushing to save county-owned properties along the Big Thompson River, and involvement with Larimer County Parks Advisory Board.
In creating the Loveland Fishing Club in September, 2003, Tom helped forge a strong relationship with Chilson Senior Center and Loveland Parks and Recreation Foundation, and has since been a consistent leader in initiatives with the Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife, Colorado Youth Outdoors fishing programs at Swift Ponds, and Loveland Police, our teammate in the annual Loveland Kids Fishing Derby.  
Tom accepts congratulations from other nominees for the TSVP Lead with Leadership Service Award at the Loveland Museum and Gallery.
